Nationwide news: Why farm certification differentiates Nationwide Agribusiness

Bankers, accountants and lawyers get specialized education and bring clients levels of expertise they don’t already have. These professionals help round out client’s own knowledge. They become trusted advisers who know your family. They help protect your business and can help you grow and prosper.

Farmers and ranchers across the country told Nationwide that’s what they wanted from their insurance agent, too:

  • Someone with a high level of specialized education.
  • Someone they could trust with a lot of personal information.
  • Someone who understands the business of farming and can help them protect their operations.

That’s why the On Your Side® Farm Certification program was created. Nationwide understands farmers and ranchers are looking for more than an insurance agent. They want a trusted adviser.

Nationwide knows of no other farm insurance company that certifies its farm agents. Nationwide wanted to provide farmers and ranchers a means to recognize insurance agents who are committed to agriculture, knowledgeable about the business of farming and bring a level of expertise that helps make an insurance program most effective—both in cost and protection.

Getting certification

Nationwide® Agribusiness’ On Your Side Farm Certified agents spend a few days in a classroom immersed in the specific kinds of risks farmers and ranchers face. They study the various policies and endorsements available and learn specific questions to ask to help customers get the most from their insurance policies. When those agents advance to Master level certification, Nationwide works with them on how to help farmers and ranchers identify potential hazards in their operations and teach them best practices for eliminating or minimizing those hazards.

Nationwide was created by the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation and its innovative leaders in 1926 and is a long-term partner who wants to work with customers to help them grow their businesses and protect them for future generations. Nationwide can offer a deep array of financial solutions for farmers and ranchers, including some of the best farm insurance available in the marketplace today. Financially strong, trust Nationwide to meet its promises of protection for its customers.

Farm Certified agents really allow Nationwide to stand out. Nationwide Agribusiness has been focused on protecting agriculture for over 100 years. That experience has taught us an incredible amount about what can happen on farms and ranches and what farmers and ranchers care about most—hard work, solid values, honest people.
